The Santa Barbara County Fire Department say firefighters responded to reports of the fire in a unit of the two-story complex on the 6555 of Picasso Road at around 2:39 p.m.

Firefighters were reportedly able to knock the flames down within about five minutes, but officials say one of the residents was complaining of smoke inhalation.

They were evaluated by paramedics on scene. It was unknown if that person would be transported to the hospital.

No one else was injured.
